SDSU MSW 2020 start

Recommended Posts

I wanted to create a space for those working on the SDSU MSW application for an autumn 2020 start.  Stop by and say hello, and we can use this to discuss application requirements and questions. Cheers!

Hi there! I’m new to gradcafe but I found your forum through a google search inquiring about SDSU’s GRE requirements for the MSW program! I am also applying for the MSW program for the fall of 2020 and wanted to know if they only consider the writing score and not the other sections? I keep hearing different things and the SDSU website isn’t specific about GRE score requirements. Thank you in advanced for your help!!!

I’m taking my GRE next month and I’m so anxious! SDSU is the only school that requires the GRE for my prospective schools :/

I had the same exact question a few months ago :) I confirmed with the department that they indeed only consider the writing score (I recall, a 4 or 5?), but that the quant and verbal scores should be acceptable as well.  I've also heard from prior applicants who were accepted that it's truly only the AWA that is considered.

Hello! 

 

Has anyone heard back from SDSU? I applied to the MSW program for 2020. Checking the portal everyday for updates but I know I will likely not hear anything until at least mid-February.

Hi there!

I applied on Nov. 9 and still haven't heard back. My webportal status states that my file has been forwarded to the department for admission recommendation.

When did you submit your app? I'm getting so anxious!

I applied by the deadline of 12/15. I'm getting so anxious too! I asked via email how long it would be and they said anywhere from mid-Feb to mid-April. That hasn't prevented me from checking my email every 30 minutes for the last four weeks though...

Oh, and I also see the same message that my file has been forwarded to the department for admission recommendation. It's said for a while now.

I am patiently waiting. SDSU is my first choice. I heard from the 1 year MSW at San Marcos, but I want to see if I get into SDSU. I also had to submit Dec 15 because I am in another one year masters right now.

Anyone hear anything yet? 

I’m waiting to hear back from SDSU MSW program for fall 2020 as well. I spoke with a woman from the program and she said I was on the list to be reviewed for the next meeting but could not disclose to me when that meeting would be. Then she said that people hear all the way until the end of April. She pretty much was saying to be patient and I’ll know when I know but that is easier said than done. 
 

I will post an update when I hear from them.

I haven’t heard anything yet for my 2020 application and I’m starting to get nervous. On the portal it still says “department reviewing file”. Did any of you hear back yet? Wishing all of us luck!

Mine still says the same thing as well. I am getting so nervous! I’m sure checking my portal every 10 minutes does not help! I had called them early in March and they said everyone should hear back anytime between “now and April.” I had called again about two weeks ago and they said “people will hear back end of March to end of April.” I emailed them the other day to ask if we should expect delays because of COVID, but I have not heard from them.
